"Anvil! The True Story of Anvil": The Year's Great Rock Movie?

By |

It's possible to be a hard-core rock fan and still be unaware of the existence of Anvil, the twenty-seven-year-old Canadian metal band that's the subject of the new documentary Anvil! The True Story of Anvil. Director Sacha Gervasi screened the film at Sundance last week, and while some moments depicting the band's struggles are amazingly reminiscent of This Is Spinal Tap, the band is indeed real. Here's some proof: footage of Slash and Anthrax's Scott Ian jamming on "Cat Scratch Fever" with the group at a Park City, Utah gig plus a few choice scenes from the doc.
